“Because Ham, the ‘father’ of Canaan, had desecrated the honor of his father by seeing his uncovered nakedness, this divine and prophetic oracle is pronounced on the people who would be known for their immorality in a shameful way, a trait discernible in this little story in the history of beginnings.” (Page 235)

“Ham’s impropriety toward the nakedness of his father prompted an oracle with far-reaching implications. Canaan was cursed; but Shem, the ancestor of Israel, and Japheth were blessed. It seems almost incredible that a relatively minor event would have such major repercussions. But consistently in the narratives of Genesis, one finds that the fate of both men and nations is determined by occurrences that seem trivial and commonplace. The main characters of these stories acted on natural impulse in their own interests, but the narrator is concerned with the greater significance of their actions. Thus it becomes evident that out of the virtues and vices of Noah’s sons come the virtues and vices of the families of the world.” (Pages 223–224)

“The Bible does teach that there are and will be temporal and eternal consequences for the believer’s sins. First, present unconfessed sin results in a loss of desire for service as one is out of experiential fellowship with God. Second, unconfessed sin also results in loss of power in the believer’s life because sin grieves the Holy Spirit. Third, unconfessed sin results in loss of opportunity since the sinning believer is not living according to the will of God. These are three very real present consequences of unconfessed sin in the believer’s life.” (Page 34)
